  • Six Flags Great America promotion - Eat a live cockroach, get a free Flash Pass

    http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/09/21/eat....ap/index.html


    Why wait in line when you can just eat a cockroach?

    That's the question Six Flags Great America is asking thrill seekers during a Halloween-themed FrightFest. The amusement park is daring customers to eat a live Madagascar hissing cockroach in exchange for unlimited line-jumping privileges.

    The promotion, which has Lake County Health Department officials shaking their heads, starts October 7.

    Anyone who chows down the entire 2- to 3-inch horned cockroach gets a pass for four people to cut to the front of ride lines through October 29.
    Park officials insist it's safe to eat the crunchy critters, but health officials are cautioning participants.

    Consuming live roaches might increase risks of gastrointestinal illness and allergies, according to Bill Mays, Lake County Health Department's community health director.

    Cockroach eaters will have to sign waivers and still pay admission fees, said Six Flags spokesman James Taylor.

      Hey, Flash Passes for 4 cost real money, it is a value of over $60.

      Heck, they serve beer at SFGA, so I would do it

        For a company that has animal theme parks... I find this promotion appalling.

                I guess Six Flags has decided that they haven't insulted their customers enough yet.

                        I think this is going to give me nightmares.

                        As nasty as I think roaches are, I don't think they deserve this. Not quite with the PETA group, but I do understand.

                        Yuck.

                                  This would explain why they're running out of money.
